Understanding the Conservation 30×30 Target

Understanding the Conservation 30×30 Target

Shrinking biodiversity and increasing climate change are twin environmental crises. And like most twins, they are inseparable. As each problem grows worse, it reinforces the other. Similarly, any action that fights climate change also helps to protect biodiversity and vice versa. One of the most effective ways to keep carbon in the ground and species in the landscape is habitat […]

Forest Agism: How the Young Forest Movement Greenwashes Logging

Forest Agism: How the Young Forest Movement Greenwashes Logging

Agism is discrimination based on age. It is usually directed against the elderly, and results from a culture that values youth above wisdom and experience. Despite being a flawed philosophy, it’s easy to understand how the fear of mortality would create the urge to “fight aging.” But if you think extending agist thinking to trees is ridiculous – well, you’d […]

Global Environmental Treaties Are Making Gains

Sometimes it seems like the only environmental news is bad news, and we never actually make any progress. Governments tend to favor short-term industrial interests over environmental legislation. Getting nations to agree to the type of global treaties necessary for real environmental progress is a Herculean task. It also doesn’t help that the United States is notorious for refusing to […]

Exotic species can still invade wildlife refuges, and plastic pollution litters national parks. Protected public lands aren’t even protected equally. There are many different classifications of public lands, and their protections vary […]

The Black-Led Environmental Movement

The Black-Led Environmental Movement

The stereotype that environmentalists are all white and wealthy, and its corollary that “Black people don’t do nature,” are both clearly false. The racist history of the environmental movement does continue to make many people of color, particularly African Americans, feel unwelcome in mainstream environmental organizations. But people of all races care about the environment. In fact, a recent survey […]
